Carlos Beltrán biography
Carlos Beltrán (full name Carlos Beltrán Martínez De Castro), a Mexican keyboard player, was born in 1956. Having received Classical training in childhood, he became interested in Symphonic Prog and soft rock. However, 1987 saw him release his only official album to date, Progressive Electronic gem, entitled ?Jericó? (on MUSART Records), where he combined his proficient Classical piano playing with Cosmic synths and sequences. Sadly, this wonderful album went largely unnoticed in his native country and the world hasn?t seen any official follow up to Jericó. However, before retiring he distributed his home-made unofficial tape Familia Carbajal, which is even harder to find than his official album. In 1997, Jerico has been re-released on CD, thereby saving it from undeserved oblivion.

Victim of its time and epoch, Jericó can still stand as a bright light of 80?s Prog Electronic music. It will especially appeal to those who like Classical and symphonic touches to Cosmic music, like, let?s say, Vangelis or Sangiuliano. Many fans would wish Tangerine Dream had sounded like this in eighties.

Review by admireArt

4 stars "JERICO", Carlos Beltran's only registered, 1987, album, here in this page, turns out to be a bag of thrills, for the "overpopulated" Progressive Electronic planet's citizens.

Combining dreamy symphonic electronic textures with straight forward acoustic piano performances. If not for the "tagging" need, this work will actually fit in both the "symphonic" and "electronic" sub-genres. The symphonic crowd will surely be thrilled by the classic compositional skills, this musician is capable of. . On the other side, people who favour the "electronics" will find a superb alternative to the zillion TD copycats, that have "standarized" such a rich style of music.

So,...Welcome to the world of Beltran's symphonic electronic songs. The pieces, there are four, have no relation with each other, therefore we get a full picture of the musician's ability to compose and perform single handed the whole album. But above everything that is good, in "Jerico", the best part still is, its way to stand outside, TD's domain, without avoiding the use of "flowing" synth environments, and the time signing pulses, the instrument inherently possess, by clear and original song writing, and the use of un-pretentious classical structures in the arrangements of each piece, which by themselves, work wonders as a listening experience.

And the not so good, still is, the hard to get this album is. But with a little effort, you will find the cd copy of the original vinyl, as I did.

Anyway, even though it is not easy to aquire (not impossible), it still stands as a ****4 PA star work that "electronic" and "symphonic" audiophiles will surely appreciate.
